The gateway is the gateway from within the mind to beyond the mind. Actually, there are many gateways, the foremost of which is stillness.  

The mind has two polarities. It is either noisy or it is quiet, full or empty, active in its thinking or still in its inactivity.

Why Does War Exist?

Written by Master Charles Cannon

blog-1-sept-2-2014

You may not think of yourself as violent, but if there is no quiet in you, if there is no peace but rather a lot of noise, it can be said that there is violence inside of you.

It could be said that if we are violent within, we are at war.  In our own incessant noise, we are at war with ourselves, and the world around us is only a reflection -- a manifestation of what we are.  Since we are violent and at war within ourselves, it isn’t surprising that our world is full of violence and war. 

 

All of Life as the Diversity of One Unity

“Nirvana may be the final object of attainment, but at this moment it’s difficult to reach; thus, the practical and realistic aim is compassion, a warm heart serving other people, helping others, respecting others, and being a little less selfish.”
~Dalai Lama

I like this quotation from the Dalai Lama. It is typical of his brilliant expression in which he simplifies everything because he knows most people can’t relate to holistic philosophical principles. The quotation is about inclusion made practical.

“Great doubts… deep wisdom; small doubts… little wisdom.”
~Chinese Proverb

It has been said that the precursor to awakening is doubt.  It is that point in the evolution of individuated consciousness where we begin to question our experience of life.  It is when we have enough self-awareness to see through the illusions of the mind and begin to dismantle its limiting database.

Ignorance is Destroyed Spirit Shines Forth Like the Sun

“Spirit is smothered by ignorance but as ignorance is destroyed spirit shines forth like the sun when released from clouds.”
~Shankara

Spirit is unified essence or Source.  It is the ground of being… the substratum or true reality.  It is also referred to as one blissful consciousness.  Such is the essential Isness of life… the ‘what is’ of life happening… within the eternal now of its happening.

“All questioning is a way of avoiding the real answer
which is already known.” ~Zen Saying

All great masters have elucidated the difference between concept and experience.  Concept is the domain of the mind and experience is trans-mental.  The truth… we are told… is forever beyond the mind… beyond concept… within trans-mental holistic experience.  Concept may point us toward the experience… but experience begins where concept ends.

Those who think they ‘know’ from the beginning will never in fact come to know anything.

“Those who think they ‘know’ from the beginning will never in fact
come to know anything.”  ~Thomas Merton

If your knowledge is an object in relation to you as a subject… then you are mired in the illusion of separation which is a virtual reality created by the ego-driven mind.  Such knowledge then is illusion… and illusion is not truth.
